Ok, I will admit that I have never made homemade play dough until the other day…  I am hitting myself as it was soooo easy to make and it does not seem to dry out like regular play-dough.  It is awesome.  I thought I would share the great recipe I used as well as a free play-dough mat for you to use with your play-dough.

Here is the recipe.

Ingredients— 1 cup all purpose flour,  1/2 cup salt,  2 tsp. cream of tartar,
1 tbsp. ground cinnamon,  2 tsp. ground ginger, 1 tsp. ground nutmeg,
1 tsp. ground cloves, 2 tbsp. vegetable oil, 1 cup water

Instructions—In a medium saucepan whisk together dry ingredients.
Next mix in the water, oil, and stir
until a thick batter is formed. Cook the mixture over
low/medium heat until a thick dough forms.
Turn out onto parchment paper and knead until smooth.
Makes about 2 cups of dough.

TA -DA!  Below are pictures of my finished play-dough (I tripled the recipe)!   It smells so good and feels so nice.  No more store bought play-dough for me.  The picture below includes the mats found in our new Gingerbread Packet Here!  Scroll down for a free mat!

 This also makes a great winter gift for your students or for your child to give to classmates.  I created a poem gift tag that is in this packet that you can attach to some dough.  The tag includes a poem I wrote and the ingredients to make some more dough at home.

Now that you want the packet – right???  or maybe you already have it!!!  Here’s a new free mat for you to download and use with the dough!  Make sure you laminate after you print it!
